I tuned this little beauty at the Crossroads Theater today for one of Denver's finest and hardest working musicians, singer and pianist Patrice LeBlanc. That's two grand pianos in a week!
I'm not getting worse at it.
IN OTHER NEWS
Molly and I were in the market recently for a piano. It was a close race with a couple of noteworthy contenders, but there's only room for one at the top in this event.
AND THE WINNER IS...
Jekyll and Hyde
BABY GOT ACTION!
The piano arrived at the house today via Keyboard Carriers of Denver, CO. The moving company staff was extremely professional and did a great job of picking up the piano and delivering it! What a beautiful instrument! This monster wouldn't fit through the doorway into the second, middle room of the house, so into the front room she goes.
From the number on our piano it looks like it was built sometime between 1915 and 1920.
I knew nothing of this company before purchasing this piano and bought it on condition and quality alone.
MARSHALL & WENDELL
An old time name in the piano industry, one of the pioneers in American piano history. Established in Albany, N. Y., in 1836. Marshall & Wendell entered upon an enlarged career. The demand for these instruments is very large and especially for home use. These pianos have been the recipients of awards at three of the most important exhibitions at the Pan American in 1901, Seattle-Yukon in 1909, the Panama Pacific Exposition at San Francisco, and their most recent triumph was the award received at the great exposition held at Rio de Janeiro to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the independence of the Brazilian Republic. The beauty of the case designs of the Marshall & Wendell is evidenced in the styles shown in the catalog of the present year. They are characterized by simplicity and beauty of proportion which make them harmonize with furnishings of finest character. In addition to the several upright styles in the Marshall & Wendell there are the Marshall & Wendell grand pianos. The celebrated Ampico, which automatically re-enacts the playing of the world's greatest pianists, is obtainable in the Marshall & Wendell.
